dc.description.abstract The significant part in this study is the fact that no recent attempts have been made to research and analyse specifically the role of the PF. What has been attempted up to now is the gathering and representation analysis of available information on the independence of Zimbabwe. Thus this study, on the other hand, attempts to present the major threads of the debates by presenting and correlating the more significant arguments found in the widespread literature. This has entailed some significant selecting of material to keep chapters within reasonable limits Books used in this study provided useful and valuable information though not dealing specifically with the role of the PF. They provided information that covers other role players like the USA, Britain and the Frontline States. However, throughout the literary study information specific to the topic was available and provided the linkage of the PF's role in the independence of Zimbabwe. The problems faced in the course of the research of this topic were that no books dealt specifically with the role of the PF and that there are few books available that deal with the topic. Other sources used in this topic were articles, newspapers and documents but they give tentative useful information and brought forth a variety of interpretations. They are very brief and composed of speeches and mostly reports on what had happened and fall short of giving detailed information. The problem encountered was that they too, don't deal specifically with the PF but provide information from which the researcher would select only what suited the topic. Because this work is a mini dissertation very little primary source material has been used. The focus has mainly been on secondary sources. This includes among others, books, articles, newspapers and research bulletins such as Africa Contemporary Record. en_US
